CISCRP Invites Patients and Caregivers to Participate in Gastric Cancer Focus Group

The Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) is looking for patients and their care partners who feel comfortable sharing their experiences with gastric cancer.

Specifically, CISCRP is looking for individuals who:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Reside in the United States
  • Have been diagnosed with gastric or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer
    • Must have a HER2 mutation (HER2-positive)
    • Must have had at least one line of treatment (ideally some will have used Enhertu or another trastuzumab-based treatment, but this is not required) OR
  • Are the primary care partner to a patient fitting the above criteria

When would the focus group take place and what would it be like to participate?

The virtual focus group would take place in late February/early March 2023. The focus group will be conducted virtually using an online platform (Zoom) as one 2-hour meeting. As a thank you for their time, CISCRP will provide an honorarium ($100/meeting hour, $200 total) to those who are eligible and participate.
